RSVP for July 27th Screening of Crossings in Washington, D.C.
In 2015 — the 70th anniversary of Korea’s tragic division by the United States and the former Soviet Union — 30 women peacemakers from around the world crossed the DMZ from North to South Korea, calling for peace on the Korean peninsula. Crossings, a new documentary film by Emmy-award-winning filmmaker Deann Borshay Liem, follows these women leaders, including Women Cross DMZ co-founders Christine Ahn and Gloria Steinem and Nobel Peace Laureates Leymah Gbowee and Mairead Maguire, on their historic journey. Through their story, Crossings explores enduring questions about war’s legacies and the role women play in resolving the world’s most intractable conflicts.
Join us at the Brookland location of Busboys and Poets in Washington, D.C. on July 27 — the 69th anniversary of the signing of the armistice agreement ending the active hostilities of the Korean War —for a screening of the documentary. The screening will be followed by a moderated discussion with 2 of the women leaders who participated in the 2015 crossing, Aiyoung Choi, board member of Women Cross DMZ, and Ann Wright, retired U.S. Army colonel.
